Several visits are arranged each year to organisations in and around Cambridge who have an international reputation for the application of research. You must be a member of CSAR to join a visit, and on most occasions you will need to provide your own transport. There is a charge of £10 per person to cover costs. Where there is a chance that a visit will be oversubscribed, members with individual or family subscriptions may be offered priority booking.
Once events are listed, places can be booked and paid for through Eventbrite.
Visits last season included a trip to NIAB's MacLeod Complex and G’s Growers Cooperative - audience feedback showed that the day was a big success:
‘Bill Clark [at NIAB] was superb - an exemplar of clarity - with a command of his subject at every level which was most impressive, combined with a natural warmth in delivery that couldn't fail to charm.'
'Two super chaps [at G's] showed us the intricacies of lettuce production and made it absolutely fascinating. The minibus made traveling around feasible, and it was valuable to see the planters and pickers first hand, rather than in a photo in a slide pack.’
‘Excellent visit, very well organised.’
